Chris Claremont and I went to Times Square and watched THE WOLVERINE, which was based on the miniseries he did with Frank Miller, and then we talked about it afterward. You can read that conversation here.
Unfortunately, he didn’t get a credit from Fox, not even a “special thanks” at the end. Nor, as far as I could tell, did any comics writer or artist, including Len Wein and John Romita, who created the character.

Bill Sienkiewicz 1990: Classics Illustrated #4: Herman Melville’s Moby Dick
When First Comics and Berkley Publishing joined forces to revive the venerable Classics Illustrated series, Sienkiewicz was attracted to the prospect of adapting a classic book to help transform the image of the comics medium:
More than anything, the superheroes have perpetuated this perception of the medium as being just for children. But that’s like saying, ‘There are only these kinds of movies’ or ‘There are only those kinds of movies,’ and then along comes Citizen Kane. To me, the comic-book medium is a way of using words and pictures together to say more than either the words or the pictures alone.[emphasis added]
